    We picked up some eggs from the local Amish store.... [​IMG]

    The biggest eggs I have ever seen in my life. I feel bad for those hens!

    The lady told me that they get them from a farmer here locally, but she didn't know who it was, and the owner wasn't there. I am going to find out where they came from and get me some of those hens! We got some brown eggs too, almost as big as the white eggs.

    That is either a really big egg, or you have really small hands!
